Like many adolescent boys, Roy Darpinian had the hots for movie divas, and one in particular was his wet dream as half of America's in the 1950s: Marilyn Monroe. The difference is, one summer holiday he actually decided to enlist his spineless buddies, Scott Foreman and Ned Bleuer, to actually drive all the way to Hollywood and make as many desperate attempts as it takes to meet her or get arrested trying, and no setback or embarrassment (even publicly bare-ass) can stop or distract him. Against all odds, he finally even got a chance to help her...Written by
The houses used in the movie were not the actual house Marilyn lived in. There was no upstairs to her actual house. Also, Marilyn had large wooden gates which were locked making it impossible for the boys to get in. See more »
It's not violent, funny, great, dramatic, nor lame. It's plain and simple, just an ordinary movie with a good plot, but not great either. It was a clash between fun and boring as well.
When I was younger, during my so-called "Teenie-bopper" days (which are now long gone now that I'm older), I loved Jason Priestley! I would tune into Beverly Hills 90210 everyday to see his face! I had posters of him plastered on my wall and one on the ceiling above my bed! Plus I had stickers, book covers, notebooks, you name it! Those were the days! I think I was like eleven years old or so. Now that I'm an eighteen year old girl, I look back at those days and say, "What was I thinking?" But I guess all girls (and sometimes boys) go through that "Teenie-bopper" phase in their early teens, but it always fades away eventually. (**grin**)
Anyhow, back in those days, I thought that this was the best movie I ever saw in my life, but now, I look at it and see just a simple and plain movie. It could be better in so many ways, but simplicity usually makes something turn out to be good. That's all this movie is...it's just good. It's not great, but it's not terrible either. It's just good.
Jason Priestley (who played smooth talking Roy) was good in this movie. I mean, it was a far cry from his (former) 90210 character, Brandon Walsh (who could forget Mr. Clean-Cut Brandon Walsh?). Now, Jason's no longer on 90210 and is married.
And Jerry O'Connell had the perfect face to play the dorky Scott, who had the wooden leg and was engaged to Becky. Of course, Jerry went on to star in other roles like in "Joe's Apartment" and "Scream 2".
By the way, what ever happened to Gabriel Olds (who played Ned, the peace maker of the group)?????
